TIFR Centre for Interdisciplinary Sciences (TCIS) at Hyderabad, wishing to
obtain degrees in Chemistry, are governed by the CSB rules and procedures.
August 2015, the Chemistry Subject Board started Integrated M.Sc.-Ph.D. programme, in addition
to the regular Ph.D. programme.† An M. Sc., an M. Tech., a B. E. or a B.
